Re: First time traveller

Hi Alan, Just to let you know there are 23 of you currently booked on our Taste of Bologna tour in October, and 11 (including yourself) are flying from Manchester. Having just returned to the office from our Charms of the Baltics tour I can assure you that you won't be the only first-time solo trave...

Re: South Africa 2019

Hi Gail,

Yes, that is correct, the tour is now full (there will be 25 of you altogether) and definitely going ahead. You should receive your travel documents a week or two before departure.

Erik.

Re: Currency exchange for Bologna trip - Oct 2019

Hi Alan, There's no such thing as a silly question. Generally it's pretty straightforward to exchange sterling for euros in Bologna - it's a big enough town with plenty of banks and bureaux de change, and your tour manager will be able to point you in the right direction. Credit and debit cards are ...

Re: First time traveller

Ha ha, I'm glad to hear it. I hope you have a great time out there and am ever so slightly jealous (the office didn't think it necessary to send me out to taste test the various visits before setting up the tour).

Re: Montenegro Sept 2019

Dear Diane,

Yes, there will be a Riviera Travel representative at Edinburgh airport to help with the check in process should you require it. They will be somewhere near the check in desks, so look out for the teal Riviera sign and/or clipboard.

Have a lovely trip!

Erik.

Re: First time traveller

Dear Alan, I totally understand your preference for travelling in January. Unfortunately given that it's winter in Europe most of our January departures are long haul and therefore it would be a stretch to describe them as short breaks (although it is all subjective I suppose). Hopefully as we grow ...

Re: First time traveller

Dear Alan, First of all welcome to Riviera Travel. I have to admit that January is a bit of a quiet period for us and so we don't have a huge selection to offer you then, with our 8-day Spectacular Nile cruise the closest to a short break (though it departs from Heathrow I'm afraid). However, if you...

Re: Classic Italy 7th October 2019

With regards to the Colosseum, if you want to visit we highly recommend you purchase your ticket in advance as it is not possible to book them on the door and they are set for a specific entry time. I would th...
